ELI – Building a New Grid without New Legislation: A Path to Revitalizing Federal Transmission Authorities
Long-distance, high-voltage transmission is central to integrating renewable generation at a sufficient scale to enable the US to decarbonize its electric system. Please join us for a discussion with Justin Gundlach and Isabel Carey on their proposals for how the U.S. Department of Energy and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission can use existing authorities to advance transmission development—even in the absence of Congressional action.
Co-authored with Ari Zevin and Sam Walsh, Gundlach and Carey’s article Building a New Grid without New Legislation: A Path to Revitalizing Federal Transmission Authorities (originally published in Ecology Law Quarterly) was selected for inclusion in the 2023 Environmental Law and Policy Annual Review (ELPAR), an annual joint publication of the Environmental Law Institute’s Environmental Law Reporter and Vanderbilt University Law School. The objective of ELPAR is to make some of the year’s best environmental law or policy ideas more accessible to policymakers and practitioners.
